Convert embedded Visio not to jpg but to svg

Postby age on Thu Jul 14, 2022 6:30 am

Good afternoon

I was wondering if somebody has an idea how I can solve my requirements.

At the moment we are using Doc-To-Help V5.0.0.1521, Word 2016 and Visio to create html-documentation from word documents with embedded Visio diagrams (flow diagrams with text). This works quite well, but there is one drawback. The embedded Visio files are converted to pictures (jpgs) and therefore we can’t search for text in the flow diagrams.

So the requirement is to “somehow” make the pictures searchable for the embedded text when converted to html. So my idea/question is if it is somehow possible to convert (when using doc-to-help) the embedded Visio not into an image (jpg, png..) but into some vector oriented format like svg that browsers can display without plugins (native) and that can be searched with the browser text search.

I downloaded the lasted doc-to-help trial and also used word 2019 but didn’t manage to get what I need. But I am not very experienced with doc-to-help so maybe I missed something.

So I am wondering if somebody has an idea how I can achieve my goal or if there are other ideas.

Thx for your ideas
Regards
